Standard Dipoma Options The standard dipoma is the type of high schoo dipoma earned by most students who graduate from Forida high schoos. A students, incuding students with disabiities, are entited to try to earn a standard dipoma. To do so, they must meet the graduation requirements set by the State of Forida and the oca schoo districts. Beginning in the schoo year, students may choose from three different options for earning a standard dipoma: a traditiona, four-year 24-credit program a three-year, 18-credit coege preparatory program a three-year, 18-credit career preparatory program.

12 Dipoma Decisions for Students with Disabiities graduation options at the beginning of every schoo year between grades six and nine. They shoud make an initia seection during the student s eighth grade year, prior to the beginning of the student s first year of high schoo. The traditiona 24-credit program is the best choice for most students. It usuay takes four years to compete. The coege preparatory program and the career preparatory program are acceerated programs that can be competed in three years. Students who seect a three-year program shoud have the abiity and desire to pursue an acceerated program. These students shoud have a cear vision of their future goas and be mature enough to succeed upon graduation. (TAP No. FY , Forida Department of Education, Bureau of Schoo Improvement, September 2004). Graduation Requirements for a Standard Dipoma The Forida Legisature sets the genera requirements for a programs eading to a standard dipoma. This ensures that a students are abe to perform at a high eve when they graduate from high schoo. The genera requirements are described in the chart beow. (See Appendix A: Graduation Requirements for a Standard Dipoma on page 35 for a detaied ist of the requirements.) State Graduation Requirements for Earning a Standard Dipoma Traditiona 24-Credit Program Three-Year, 18-Credit Programs compete at east 24 academic credits compete 18 academic credits in in specified course work specified course work earn a cumuative 2.0 grade point earn a cumuative 3.0 grade point average (GPA) on a 4.0 scae average (GPA) on a 4.0 scae earn passing scores on the Grade 10 earn passing scores on the Grade 10 Forida Comprehensive Assessment Forida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) Test (FCAT) Schoo districts may set additiona requirements for the 24-credit program. They cannot change the requirements for the three-year graduation programs. For exampe, the State requires at east 24 credit hours of course work for earning a standard dipoma through the traditiona program. However, in some schoo districts, students are required to earn as many as 32 credit hours for a traditiona standard dipoma. Check with your chid s teachers, guidance counseor, or oca schoo district office to find out if your district has additiona requirements for the traditiona program. Course Credit Requirements and Cassroom Accommodations The State requires students to earn a specific number of credit hours in certain courses for a standard dipoma.

13 Dipoma Decisions for Students with Disabiities (reguar academic) courses cannot be changed. Students with disabiities are expected to earn the same things as nondisabed students. However, modifications can be made to requirements for career education (vocationa) courses, as appropriate. (See Appendix B: Accommodations and Modifications on page 37.) Some courses may be too advanced for your son or daughter. If so, your chid may be abe to use Leve I basic education courses to meet graduation requirements for required courses. Leve I courses are fundamenta courses that target ower skis. However, the use of Leve I courses must be approved in writing by the principa, the guidance counseor, and the parent. Leve I courses cannot be used to meet the requirement for Agebra I or its approved equivaent courses. To graduate with a standard dipoma, students must aso earn a specific number of eective credits. There are many choices of eective courses. Students may take basic education and career education courses for eective credits. Most ESE courses and a remedia and compensatory courses may ony be used for eective credits. These courses are used to suppement reguar courses or to deveop needed skis. The ESE vocationa courses for students with disabiities may be used to meet the 1/2 credit practica arts graduation requirement. Keep in mind that students with disabiities may be provided accommodations in basic education courses, career education courses, and tests. Accommodations may change the way a student is taught or tested. They do not change what the student is expected to earn. Exampes of Cassroom Accommodations for Students with Disabiities using adapted i nstruct i ona toos, such as a ca cu ator w i th en arged numbers ad j ust i ng t i me demands and schedu es, such as a ow i ng more t i me to finish assignments and courses mak i ng changes i n the earn i ng env i ronment, such as prov idi ng a work stat i on su i ted to a whee cha ir mak i ng changes to c assroom assignments or tests, such as read i ng sc i ence test quest i ons out oud The Individuas with Disabiities Education Act (IDEA) and Forida aws require that students with disabiities be provided accommodations, if necessary. Students who quaify as students with disabiities under Section 504 of the Rehabiitation Act of 1973 are aso eigibe for accommodations, if needed. The transition IEP team or the 504 pan team determines which, if any, accommodations your chid needs. This information is recorded on the student s IEP or 504 pan. Information about your chid s accommodations must be Accommodations and Modifications on page 37 for more information.) 5

14 Dipoma Decisions for Students with Disabiities Grade Point Average Requirement To earn a traditiona 24-credit standard dipoma, students must earn a cumuative 2.0 grade point average (GPA) on a 4.0 scae for courses they have taken in high schoo. The cumuative GPA is the overa average of fina grades received in courses. If a student receives a fina grade of D or F for a course, the course may be repeated, according to state and district poicies. Ony the higher grade earned wi count towards the cumuative GPA. Check with your schoo board district office for information regarding oca grade forgiveness poicies. Assessment Requirements and Test Accommodations Students, incuding those with disabiities, must take the Forida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). The FCAT measures student achievement of a number of the Sunshine State Standards, which identify the knowedge and skis students are expected to earn. The FCAT tests reading, writing, mathematics, and science. It is given in grades three through eeven. Students must earn passing scores on the Grade 10 FCAT to earn a standard dipoma. Accommodations may be provided for the FCAT and for other State or district tests if a student with disabiities needs them. For exampe, a student with visua impairments may need to use a arge print or Braie version of the test. A student with motor impairments who can t write independenty may dictate the answers to a test proctor instead of writing them. Necessary accommodations are identified by the student s IEP team or 504 pan team. Each student s IEP or 504 pan must incude a statement of the testing accommodations the student requires, if any. Accommodations used with the FCAT shoud be simiar to those the student uses in the cassroom. Some accommodations used in the cassroom are not aowed on the FCAT, because they change what the test measures. For exampe, students are not aowed to use cacuators for basic computation on the FCAT mathematics in grades 3 through 6. If your chid is provided an accommodation in the cassroom that is not aowed on the FCAT, you must be tod about possibe consequences of aowing the student to use that accommodation in the cassroom. Such an accommodation can ony be used in the cassroom with your written consent. (See Appendix B: Accommodations and Modifications on page 37 for more information.) If students do not pass the Grade 10 FCAT, they may retake the test during reguary schedued testing times in the eeventh and twefth grades. Students who fai the FCAT wi receive remediation to hep them earn the necessary skis. They may aso take specia courses to hep them earn the skis tested on the FCAT. The IEP team shoud identify ways to hep the student pass the FCAT. For certain students with disabiities who have IEPs, a waiver may be considered for the FCAT requirement. A waiver can be granted if the IEP team determines that the FCAT does not accuratey measure a student s abiity, even with aowabe accommodations. The student must have attempted the FCAT at east twice, for exampe, once during tenth grade and once during eeventh grade. The IEP team 6

15 Dipoma Decisions for Students with Disabiities must document that the student has mastered the Sunshine State Standards tested on the FCAT. The student must aso have the required credits and cumuative GPA for graduation. Ony students who are seniors pursuing the traditiona 24-credit standard dipoma program are eigibe for an FCAT waiver. The decision regarding a waiver cannot be made before the twefth grade. Any student who has not achieved a passing score on the FCAT must receive intensive remediation. To hep evauate the effectiveness of the remediation and make sure that each student has had every opportunity to pass the FCAT, the student must participate in the March administration of the FCAT during his or her senior year. Extended Time for Meeting Graduation Requirements Students with disabiities who have not earned a standard dipoma may stay in schoo unti they are 22 years od. This aso appies to students with disabiities who have been awarded a specia dipoma, certificate of competion, or specia certificate of competion before age 22. The district must continue to offer services unti the student is 22 years od or unti the student earns a standard dipoma, whichever comes first. This poicy is incuded in the Individuas with Disabiities Education Act. Districts provide educationa services in different ways for students who stay in schoo unti age 22. Services and supports may be provided at the high schoo or at an off-campus ocation. Educationa programs may aso focus on preparing students for empoyment and adut ife. The transition IEP team decides on the best pacement for the student based on individua needs. Ask your oca ESE or adut education office about opportunities avaiabe in your district. Specia Dipoma Options Specia dipomas are avaiabe to students with disabiities who are not abe to meet the requirements for a standard dipoma. The State of Forida provides genera guideines for specia dipoma options. More specific requirements are set by each schoo district. Two specia dipoma options are avaiabe for students with disabiities. A schoo districts in Forida must offer specia dipoma option 1. They may choose to offer specia dipoma option 2. Most Forida schoo districts currenty offer specia dipoma option 2. Check with your oca schoo district ESE office to determine if option 2 is avaiabe in your district. 7

These standards refect modified, yet chaenging expectations for students with disabiities who are working significanty beow grade eve. A student with disabiities is expected to master each standard at a eve of functioning that is appropriate to the individua student. The transition IEP team wi determine the eve of functioning for each standard for your son or daughter. The Sunshine State Standards for Specia Dipoma have benchmarks at three eves of functioning. Independent Leve: Students are abe to perform the skis for each benchmark on their own. Supported Leve: Students require ongoing use of prompting or supervision in order to perform the skis for each benchmark. Participatory Leve: Students require extensive persona assistance to be abe to participate in activities of daiy iving.

18 Dipoma Decisions for Students with Disabiities Certificates of Competion With carefu panning and monitoring of progress, the majority of students with disabiities wi be abe to earn a dipoma. However, some students may compete the required high schoo courses but fai to meet a of the other graduation requirements. Students who are unabe to meet a graduation requirements may receive a certificate of competion. A certificate of competion is not a dipoma. It certifies that a student attended high schoo but did not meet a graduation requirements. Three types of certificates of competion are avaiabe. The reguar certificate of competion is avaiabe to any student who passes the required courses in high schoo but doesn t achieve the required GPA and did not pass the Grade 10 FCAT. Students must be in the traditiona, four-year 24-credit graduation program to receive a reguar certificate of competion.

This credentia gives the student expanded options for postsecondary education and empoyment after high schoo. A student who receives this certificate of competion is aowed to take the Coege Pacement Test and be admitted to either remedia or credit courses at a Forida community coege, depending on the test score achieved. Any student with a disabiity staffed into an exceptiona student education program who has eft high schoo without earning a standard dipoma or its equivaent may return to high schoo to further his or her education unti age 22.
